Pros and cons of cloning organisms?
The pros and cons of cloning organisms are as following: PROS: 1.if the vital body organs are cloned,they could serve as a lifesaver by replacing the failed body organ with the cloned one. 2.It can prove to be a solution for infertility since humans with certain traits can be reproduced through cloning. 3.Cloning could help researchers in genetics understand the composition of genes and effects of genetic constitution on human traits. 4.Plants and animals near extinction could be saved through cloning. CONS: 1.Since man can tamper with genetics in humans,there can be a deliberate reproduction of undesirable traits. 2.Certain ethical aspects dont approve cloning. 3.The Earth is already over-populted and there is food shortage,cloning would mean more organisms. 4.Cloning would result in lack of DNA diverstiy needed to improve survivability in the future. 5.Cloning is far more expensive than to reproduce organismns by other means. hope my answers help you....best of luck :)

Why clone humans?
Human cloning is a topic of worldwide controversy and ethical and religious debate. It is already banned in many places. Some debaters argue in favor of human cloning for the purposes of initiating a pregnancy (reproductive cloning) and for medical research or treatment (therapeutic cloning). Debating these uses of cloning is complicated by the difficulty of reaching agreement about the definition of a human being (e.g., whether an embryo can yet be considered a human person). Further details on the pros and cons of human cloning are covered in other, similar questions on this topic in WikiAnswers.
